Indigenous people of the Kayapo and Munduruku peoples will travel to Brasília (DF) this Wednesday (7) to participate in a meeting at the Ministry of Transport in which they will reinforce their position against the construction of Ferrogrão, a railway that should transport soy from Mato Grosso to export ports from Pará.
Linked to the Kabu institute, in Novo Progresso (PA), the indigenous people intend to demand in-depth studies of environmental impacts and that consultations are also carried out in the villages, which has not happened so far and is considered mandatory by Convention 169 of the ILO (International Organization of Labor). The railway is suspended due to the fact that it crosses the Jamanxim national forest.
